|Area Description:||The Village of Grass Lake is located in Eastern Jackson County between Ann Arbor and Jackson. While to some degree the Village is self-sufficient, it is surrounded by Grass Lake Township and is dependent upon cool cities neighboring urban areas for employment, various shopping opportunities and cultural activities. Still supported by a number of family farms in the area, farming has given way to new development and expanses of single family home subdivisions. Still, the area maintains its rural character and holds a rich heritage in the late 1800's and early 1900's era structures in the core of downtown, the focal point of which remains the old Michigan Central Railroad Depot at 210 E. Michigan Avenue|
|Zoning Description:||AG - Agricultural Areas designated as Agricultural account for the majority of the Township and nearly all lands currently farmed. This designation is intended to encourage the long-term protection of the farmland resources and provide opportunities for low-density residential development that preserves the community's overall rural character, natural resources, and open spaces. This Plan recognizes that farming plays an important role in the history and character of Sharon Township, contributes important food and fiber to local and regional populations, and is an important source of income. The Strategy encourages the continuation of all current farming activities as well as the introduction of new farming activities. All typical farming activities, including the raising of crops, the use of stables, silos, and barns are encouraged provided that they meet Department of Agriculture requirements as ''generally accepted agricultural land management practices." However, in light of the increasing level of residential development in the Township, the introduction of new large concentrated livestock operations should be per mitted only after special review to assure compatibility with neighboring land uses and adequate parcel area and site development features. Lands designated as Agriculture are largely characterized by one or more conditions that support their long· term agricultural economic viability including: 1) classification by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as "prime farmland"; 2) minimum parcel sizes of 40 acres; 3) limited encroachment by non-agricultural land uses; 4) enrollment in the P.A. 1161 Farmland and Open Space Protection Program; 5) enrollment or participation in PDR/TDR programs; and 6) adjacency to other farmland parcels. Lands designated as Agricultural are not intended to serve as significant residential growth zones. Agricultural operations are intended to be the primary use of land. At the same time, this Plan recognizes that farming, as an industry, is facing challenges due to a number of factors, including economic conditions. Ongoing measures are being pursued on the state level to pass legislation improving the economic viability of farming in Michigan. The Plan also recognizes that the ability of a farm owner to split off residential lots has certain merits and a place within the Township. It is the intent of the Strategy to provide opportunities for residential development on Agricultural designated lands, but that such development be low density in sup· port of the preservation of farmland resources, management of growth and development, and the preservation of important natural resources, open spaces, rural character, and road safety.|
